Grade: 5
Details: no. 1 Odd Thomas novel
Audio: 10 Cd's/11 hours 10 minutes
Narrator: Jeff Harding

Odd Thomas, yes that really is his name, has, for lack of a better word, odd talents.
Although his talent as a fry cook is perfectly normal, his ability to see dead people, and to see bloodshed and disaster coming, aren't.
And, right now, all signs seem to indicate that an enormous disaster is about to visit the town of Pico Mundo, the place where Odd and his girlfriend, Stormy, call home.
What is more, Odd has only 24 hours to discover what form this disaster will take and where it will take place, if he wants to have any chance of preventing the looming death and destruction.
This was a wonderful book, much better than I expected it to be.
Odd is a wonderful character and narrator, and despite his special abilities, totally believable.
Although the story has some horrific qualities, it never felt like I was reading horror.
I'm really looking forward to the further adventures of Odd Thomas.
